Celtics’ star Jayson Tatum rips Trump for kneeling comment “Give a damn if you watch!!”

Friday morning, President Trump tweeted:

Tony Fauci has nothing to do with NFL Football. They are planning a very safe and controlled opening. However, if they don’t stand for our National Anthem and our Great American Flag, I won’t be watching!!!

Boston Celtics NBA star Jason Tatum fired back:

Give a damn if you watch!!

Per NBCSports, several of Tatum’s Celtics teammates including Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, and Enes Kanter already have let their voices be heard during Black Lives Matter protests.

When the NBA season resumes and the NFL season begins, we can expect even more athletes to use their platforms to raise awareness, regardless of how Trump feels about it.
